    A chunk of the pics are of so-called "ghosts." Come on...

    It's almost as if that website's revenue is generated per click...

    The ads were brutal, to the point, I didn't care if they were the coolest pictures ever.

    Example of marketing run amok.

    I had no idea there were any ads at all, running AdBlock on Safari.

    Cool pics, but I have a question...

    Once a photograph is on the internet how can it be "rare"?

    Like "rare" videos on YouTube? 12,000,000 views, but it's rare. Not.

    I hate sites that make me click "Next" for each photo. Pure page-hit inflation. Still, it was worth it for this gem:

    I find it unbelievable that in this era of the internet people still don't know about adblock.

    explorer76,

    Thank you! I thoroughly enjoyed those photos. The beautiful and the ugly.

    My favorite was the one of the French children watching the puppet show!

    (I have Adblock on Firefox. I didn't know there was a problem...)
